Calling All Vegetables!

Since it came up in a post, AND it is the Fourth of July and the 4th of July is a great day for drinking beer and I have had several requests, I give you:

The Rules for the Drinking Game “Calling All Vegetables”:

Background – For all I know everybody knows this game, but I learned it from my friend Jill. Jill went to the University of Florida, so she knows some good drinking games.

1) Everybody picks a different vegetable. Somebody can be broccoli, somebody can be carrot, somebody can be asparagus etc. (I always pick pea because I am totally immature and I think yelling pea is hilarious. )

2) Somebody begins by yelling: “CALLING ALL VEGETABLES!”Calling all vegetables

3) I would start by saying “Pea to Carrot”, then the guy who is carrot says “Carrot to Broccoli” then the person who is broccoli will say “Broccoli to Pea” – you can call people in any order.

4) The trick is this – you cannot show your teeth at any time during the game.

It is harder than you think.

5) The first person who shows their teeth has to drink and then you start a new round.

See, it’s tough not to show your teeth when you laugh and it is hard not to laugh when everyone is trying to yell out vegetables without revealing any teeth.


Warning: Don’t even bother trying to play “Calling all Vegetables” while under the influence of marijuana. The game only lasts about three seconds and you run the risk of forgetting what you were doing.

Not that I would know anything about that.

  1. Marijuana? What is this marijuana you speak of?

  2. Have you been visiting with Herb again?

  3. Flat out hysterical. We’re planning on camping in August and the folks we’re going with said they’d come only if they could bring the weed. I’m going to see if, in fact, this game can be played, in fact, for more than three seconds under the late-night influence of kids sleeping soundly and parents doing something they’ve not done in…holy crap, Batman…11 years!

  4. This is EXACTLY my type of game. We have a girls’ weekend coming up and I can see it being a nig hit, since it’s nutritious-ish.

  5. I hear in the south they can play this game for days without seeing teeth.

  6. This is awesome. It’s just like an improv warm-up game called Big Booty which is the same only with numbers instead of vegetables, you get to show your teeth, and the people you play with are generally really pretentious.

  7. Hahaha. This totally cracked me up. I am home sick, mooching about the house in my PJs, and just went to the mirror to say vegetable names at myself to see if I could see my teeth.

  8. Ok, the first and only time I played this game I was WITH Sarah (it’s true…she was Pea) and I had um…done what she said NOT to do…and yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

    Listen to Sarah. She is wise.

  9. I know a lot of drinking games from my college days, but this is definitely a new one. Thanks for sharing!

  10. Where have you been all my life?!?!?!?

  11. Thank Goodness you don’t have to drink the “juice of the vegetable” assigned to you.

  12. under the influence of what?

    teach me more…

  13. I’m usually rutabaga. Pea is much easier to say with your lips curled around your teeth.

  14. Thinking of vegetables and trying to say them out loud w/o showing my teeth. At work. People are starting to stare…

  15. Great memories. Great times.
    That’s all I’m sayin’!

  16. Hysterical! But I could never play along – I would never remember my vegetable name.

    I think I’m a fruit.

  17. I am SO pretending to not hear this… I’m a lawman, ya know!

  18. 1) I’ve totally played Big Booty before as Mom-101 had mentioned. It’s really quite awesome.

    2) We’re going to play this. I will force you to play drinking games with me. So there!

    Get it, please…peas??
    I miss you, Za. When can we get together and play again?

  20. I’d never heard of this game, but I’m trying it at my next party for sure.
